Action Glen is excited to be out on the road this summer at lots of local events. One of the biggest events on our calendar this year is the Action Glen Family Fun Day at Perth Race Course on Sunday 13th July.
On the day, we will be taking along a range of activities including Face painting, bouncy castle, Segways, quad pods, Action Combat, pony rides, archery, sumo suits and pole joust and our Tomcat Land Rover. Don’t forget we will also be sponsoring 2 races on the day so hopefully the odds will be good!
Ross, Manager at Action Glen said “We are delighted to be involved in this year’s Family Fun Race Day at Perth Racecourse, our first year as the official providers of fun! We’re looking forward to a terrific day and creating a ‘mini’ Action Glen experience at the course for guests to experience a wide and exciting range of activities, from Segways to Quad Pods, Archery to Sumo Suits, face painting to pony rides and also the more energetic Action Combat, replicating the Woodland Combat experience this tie with over 60 inflatables and laser guns. Whatever the weather, we’re sure it’ll be a fantastic day for all!”
For those of you looking for some where to stay, Perth Race Course has teamed up with Crieff Hydro and are offering discounted rates for weekend stays! A coach has also been organised from Crieff Hydro, taking you straight to the event so no queuing in a hot car for you!
Come along and say Hi for your chance to win your ultimate day out and you may just be lucky enough to receive a discount card as well!
As well as the races, Action Glen are going to be a series of other events including Bannockburn Live on 28th & 29th June, the Wickerman Festival, on the 25th and 26th July, Drummond Castle Gardens on 3rd August and Knockhill Racing Circuit on 23rd & 24th August.

With the sun finally starting to make an appearance, we have decided to make the most of it here at Action Glen!
This weekend hosts the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, so we thought we would make the most of it by hosting a late night Aloft! and Woodland Combat session. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is any old session, we will be making a night of it! With a bonfire, drinks and BBQ being held at Action Glen, get your friends and family together and challenge them to a battle of the lasers or take on the hair raising Aloft! tree top adventure while the sun is setting over the Strathearn valley.
Once completed, head down to the bonfire to get a well deserved drink and toast some marshmallows by the fire! So bin on the usual Saturday night telly and get the gang together for a night of summer time madness!
Summer time madness may to many people mean a house full of kids, filled with energy and parents thinking, “What am I going to do with the kids this summer?” Well, we have a few ideas for you and they won’t break the bank!
On Saturday 28th June, come along to our Loch Earn watersports centre for a Thrill and Grill event. Between 2pm and 5pm, you can take to the water and try out our inflatables including Big Mable which could be described as a “big sofa, pulled behind a speed boat” and Tornado, our giant inflatable biscuit along with much more.
Once back on dry land, head to the BBQ for bite to eat. For those who are not a fan of the water, there will be plenty to keep you entertained on the shore. We will be taking along the quad pods, archery and much more to continue the summer time madness.
And the best bit is, it is just £5pp for the watersports. All watersports are open aged 6 and over (with adult supervision) so come along for a great family day out!
For more Summer time madness during the holidays, check out our range of kids bundles which will be running daily from 1pm and includes our Super Hero training for kids aged 6 and up. For the younger ones, our mini explorers bundle is sure to fit the bill. And for kids aged 8 and over, we have our Motorised Mayhem to save you money and tire the kids out! Win Win situation!

With Glasgow playing host to one of the biggest sporting events this year, the 2014 Commonwealth Games, we have been planning our own summer of sport here at Action Glen.
To celebrate the opening and closing ceremonies, we are going to be throwing a party to celebrate along with Crieff Hydro. Come along on and join us on July 23rd and 3rd August for a family fun day!
From quad pods to face painting, pony rides to bouncy castles, the little ones won’t know what to do first! But don’t worry, it is not all about the kids, there is pole jousting, sumo suits and woodland combat for the big ones (and adults too!). With a BBQ on offer as well, it is a great family day out!
For those with a bit more of a competitive streak, we have just the thing! Why not take on one of our sporting experience packages and try out some new activities. Think bowls is for your granny, think again!
With three packages on offer, choose your challenge and compete again family and friends to be Glen’s Champion.
Experience the adrenaline rush of the air rifle range and try your hand at a leisurely session of lawn bowls (you bring the competitors, we’ll provide the jacks). With 900 acres of estate to explore, we think you’ll also love a guided hack on horseback, not to mention a full day’s mountain bike hire. Suitable for age 8+, each activity lasts approximately one hour (mountain bike hire 8 hours).
Not only is archery the sport of kings, it’s really brilliant fun. We’ll have you hitting targets in no time. As well as an hour of archery, you’ll also have the chance to hone your equestrian skills with a half hour group horse riding lesson. Round off your sporting experience with a glide down our 170m lip line. Suitable for age 6+.
Our youngest guests can get in on the sporting action with our quad pods, a convoy of off-road pods for the tiniest adrenaline seekers (and their grown up). They’ll love a guided pony ride in the safety of our enclosed arena too (bring your own carrots). Our bronze sporting experience is rounded off with a game of crazy golf for two, and a treasure hunt all the family can enjoy. Suitable for age 5 and under.
With so much on offer this summer at Action Glen, you will be mad to miss out!
